Customisers, DIY-ers and sneaker enthusiasts have been sole swapping for years and finally the sportswear giants have cottoned on and listened to what the people want, or think they want.
Nike have delivered two official hybrid models of the Air Max ’97 and Air Max Plus. Taking the upper from one and placing it carefully on the sole of the other and vice versa. Take your pick: the Air Max ’97 upper with the sole of the Air Max Plus or the upper of the Air Max Plus with the sole of the Air Max 97. The two sole-swapped iterations come to us in a spring-ready blue with white and black accents, incorporating subtle hits of classic Nike orange branding on the tongue and the heel.
